I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/directdownload.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

i need a processor with SSE2 instructions but none are available for my mother board. so i would like to find a motherboard that fits everything i already have. that's the simple part. but since my computer is a Compaq Presario (SR1200NX) so it has a lot of extra USB and card reader slots that have extra cords that seam to plug into weird places on the mother board. I was hoping someone could help me find something that fits? i dont know what information to provide but i just want to get the best that i can get with what i have. I just want to upgrade the computer without having to leave empty holes where the panels were.

He took it out and it fired up trying to start up in safe mode. It wouldn't go into safe mode though. So now it fails to start. Did he fry his motherboard? If not what can we do?

Hi, i have been doing extensive looks on google for my mother board drivers for windows XP because i threw away my motherboard box that contained my drivers disk in it. I have actually gotten used to windows vista's handy auto-detection of ethernet but i reinstalled XP as a dual-boot for my computer because i still liked sertain features of it but wanted both. But since i lost my CD, i no longer have the drivers for my ethernet controller and XP doesnt automatically detect my ethernet.

My motherboard is the MSI MS-7345. If anyone has the disk or can find a download to fix this problem, it would be greatly appreciated

A:Solved: 2 Mother Board specs and question

Firstly, because your computer is a Dell - most mobos will not fit as they are custom made for Dell and are often BTX type and not ATX (or M-ATX) it has only been in very recent times that some Dell machines come with ATX mobos.

However you could simply change your case and psu and mobo - then you have loads of options for upgrading.

Earlier this summer, I told my sister I could upgrade her daughter's old computer and install a new motherboard, cpu and memory, and hard drive in it.

She decided not to do that, but a few weeks ago purchased full Windows 7 (not upgrade) and installed it on this machine. Of course the result is slow and now she wants it upgraded to new parts...

Is it possible to use that 7 license for a new motherboard for that case? I'm thinking the answer is no and she just wasted $200 bucks, but I was wondering if there was any way... thanks! Monique
 

A:Solved: Swapping mother board and innards and reusing license?

so you're wondering if you were to replace the motherboard with a new one if the OS would no longer work?

that's not the case. the disc itself, especially if it's new for clean install, will load just fine, and the license is for your copy of windows, not what motherboard you have.

as long as you have an upgrade compatible with the rest of your components, you should be good

DDR3 comes with high clocks but also with price and high latency. So, high quality DDR2 would(COULD in some occasions) still outdo DDR3. To a point, latencies can determine the performance more than clocks.

Hello,
I am wanting to get a new mother board, to use with the AMD XP 1700 or greater processor. I am wanting to sue RDRam. However all I see is DDRAM boards. Is DD and RD Ram the same thing??? If a mother board supports DDRam will it also support RDRam???
Is there any reomendation for a mother board that will use RDRam and the AMD chip???

Thanks,

Bear
 

A:Mother Board

Currently, there are no motherboards or chipsets that support RDRAM with AMD processors. It could be a possiblity in the future.

RDRAM and DDR RAM are not at all the same thing. They are two different types of memory. None of the memory types are interchangeable. A particular memory slot can only accept one type of memory. Some motherboards support two different types of memory, but they have separate slots for each type, and you can only use memory sticks of one type. You cannot use both types at one time.

You can always open up the case, and see if there's physically a PCIe x16 slot there or not. Some pics of the PCIex16 and how to differentiate it and the AGPx8 slot here.

New Guy here is in need of locating an older Latitude CPX Mother Board. I realize this is a tall order..because its old, but thought I would check. I was permenetly injured a few years ago (seriously) and am trying to get 3 kids into and through school. I have this Latitude..CPX yea its 6 years old, but I have nothing in it. IS it possible to locate a Mother Board. The Keyboard area of the mother board is out, i was told. I bought a new keyboard... only to find its likely the mother board. The minute I download the keyboard drivers... the keys work properly. Then, when I restart it.... boom... the keys are all screwed up. I hit the N key and a 6 appears??? Stuff like that. Anyway, any leads or suggestions, please let me know. I'm a real rookie at computers. Thanks,
 

A:Need Mother Board

Hi Buzz,
It sounds like you need to remap your keyboard. Go the following Microsoft webpage:

http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/...69-57ff-4ae7-96ee-b18c4790cffd&displaylang=en

and download the Server 2003 tools software for free (good for XP too). Run the "remapkey.exe" tool to reprogram your keyboard--provided you're running Windows XP, of course.

Hope this helps! Good luck!

I want to unplug everything from the existing mother board, remove it, and slide in a new mother board, reconnect everything, boot from the Win XP CD, do a repair and take off running without having to re-install all the application programs.
Will this work, or do I have do do a completely new install of XP and reinstall all the applications?

It should be an ATX form factor. I have an 8300 and it's a standard ATX mobo. The only thing you need to be careful of is that there isn't anything proprietary like the front panel connections or power supply connections. Sometimes they use things that are not standard.

No contest the second one.

The screen stayed a dark black green flashed a couple times and it beeped at me a few time. When it did come up, the screen was really dark, and it came up as trying to fix windows from not booting.

One problem that has me perplexed . When a customers motherboard goes down , it means reformatting and re-installing XP. Of course all my customer info is gone. If you try to boot up With the new motherboard XP will not load. It launches a critical error and says the boot sector has a virus. I know that XP has this built in to prevent it from being installed on several different computers . This anti-piracy is based upon motherboards bios.

I will not build a computer with pirated software but when the legal owner of the PC and the software needs his computer fixed he should not have to lose all his info. This is when I miss 98 , ME. Under those most computers it was replace motherboard and after several reboots you were all ready to go with all your data intact.

has anybody come up with a work around for this ?

A:When Mother board goes w/XP

What kind of computer are we talking about? According to MS, if you get an OEM motherboard from the manufacturer, with SLP (System-Locked Preinstall) in the BIOS, that's all you need. They don't mention any re-install. Maybe you can sort it out from This Page Is it possible to do a repair install and save the data?

Was your old CPU a Celeron as well? Same speed?

You may want use the Clear CMOS jumper to clear the BIOS settings or you can pull out the CMOS battery for a few minutes.

Try reseating the RAM and video card as well. Or try a known good piece of RAM and a good video card. You can disconnect all the drives and remove any unneccessary PCI cards like a modem.

Hello,
Thank you for taking the time to read this message.
It has been a few years now since I have built my own system.
I do not think the old days of FDISk exist anymore, I could be wrong.

I have a hardrive that is filled with a lot of cool stuff. My question is :
If I build a new system Mobo/RAM/Video/ etc. will my hardrive bomb out on me and not work with the new system ?
It has been a while and I am getting a little rusty with the new stuff.
Thank you for your time and any information will be appreciated.

A:New Mother Board and System

I do a lot of upgrades and new builds. What size is your old HD? Is it SATA? Smallest HD installed here in SA is now 160GB and SATA is the option.

What I do as basic now is install 160 GB system HD, backed up by a 250GB min data drive for Movies/Music/Data etc.

If you are serious about upgrade that's gonna last you another 5 years or so and handle all the desirable stuff that makes a computer worth owning, why not go Core Duo min 2.3 GHz rather than single core?

Put your old HD into semi-retirement and annexe it as another optional "slave" drive for accessing your cool stuff. You'll need to have the installation discs for your OS and programs for the new drive.

One trick I often do is an image backup of the old hard drive and do a restore onto the new drive. There's a lot of ducking and diving to set it up, but the benefits are often a nice way of moving house and keeping the furniture to come with.

I always check to keep the MOBO's old/new chipsets in the family, eg. VIA on old ... VIA on new, so I get minimum upsets on sound/video driver compatibility. New MOBO will come with install disc anyway.

When the system fires up and boots into XP I do a check disk that sorts out any loose ends on the reboot.

I see you are a regular here for problem solving so I am sure you are well capable of climbing in and giving yourself a worthwhile upgrade to drive around with the some of the newer models LOL.
And just for fun you could safely check your old hard drive (switched to master with the new one safely unplugged from power and IDE strap to se if it boots up (ahh... the old faithful as it used to be... yeah )

Rebuilds are fun and very rewarding, like pimping ya ride.

Hi: I found your form surfing the web. There is a lot of information here. I have a problem hope to gain from the experience many of you have. My daughter has a Dell C600 laptop. Her power cord melted into the socket in the computer. I took it to a repair guy and he cut the socket off and tried to get the rest out with a pair of neddle nose pliers. The result was not successful. He then informed me that if he had to take the machine apart, it would cost more than the computer is worth. My questions are: could the melting of the power cord while the computer was on have hurt the computer. I would hate to pay for such a replacement of that socket to have a dead computer. The second question is: how much should one pay for such a repair? Thanks in advance for your time and advice.
 

A:How bad is the damage to the mother board?

Not sure how that would have happened. But I'd say you have at least a fair chance that the computer is still ok, and only the power supply is screwed. But then again if the cord melted, something seriously wrong happened and your motherboard might be fried too.

Maybe ask the shop if they will sell you a powersupply for a dell system? They might have a few laying around. That way you can just swap the power supply out yourself (easy job) and see if the computer will turn on.

There is really nothing the shop can do to fix it if the motherboard fried during the meltdown. If there is critical data on the hard drive you can take it out, and get an adapter to have it work in your desktop PC, either internally or externally through USB 2.

I am getting ready to swap a motherboard into an old case, someone told me once that sometimes the motherboard doesn't fit into the case correctly, is this true? Before I do anything I need to know this so it doesn't haunt me later on.

Thanks,
Sir Loin

Hi,
am using windows 7 x64.
i had BSOD problem and found out the problem is mother boards ram slots and one of my ram is also malfunctioning.

After replacing with a new different mother board i am getting BSOD in startup.

i thought windows 7 will automatically accept the new chipset. Is there are any ways to prevent from reinstalling windows again ?

thank you.

Note : since the system is getting BSOD in the startup i couldn't get the dump file.

I wanted to update my mother board drivers. There seems to be a few that need updating. My question is, that is it kinda tricky to do these updates? Can you mess things up if you don't do it correctly? My mother board is a Gigabyte GA-81945P-G. Is it REALLY necessary to update these drivers, even if my system is running good? Thanks for any ideas on this.
 

A:Mother board drivers

I would only use the CD that came with the motherboard to install the drivers. If everything is running ok I would not upgrade the drivers unnecessarily. This used to be a school of thought, but isn't the case anymore. If it works don't fix it. I never choose to randomly update my graphics or auto drivers any more. As long as they are working I leave them alone. Updating the drivers can sometimes result in negative results and cause you to roll back the driver to the previous one.
